The Bay to Baker Trail is a countywide trail system. These trails are in various stages of development with the goal of being able to provide combined hike, bike and some horse trail opportunities across the county on former railroad, logging road, and other established corridors.
Whatcom County purchased 4.1 acres in Birch Bay for development of a waterfront community park. In 2016 three community meetings were held to introduce the project and gather community input. Plans for the park include a multi-purpose shelter, restrooms, a natural play area, picnic areas and off-street parking.
